Eat Drink Man Women ( the Movie)
Eat Drink and LIVE Eat drink Man Woman is a film that is set in another Taiwan. This movie follows three young women and their dad. The movie also follows other characters who are very close friends of the family. The dad in the movie is master chu, He is a widowed master chief who has raised his three daughters. His daughter’s names are Jia-Jen who is his youngest, Jia-Chien who is the middle daughter and Jia-Ning who is the eldest of chu’s daughters. In this movie the women all lead very different lives, Though they live different lives when it comes to finding love, dealing with their dad and making family announcement the women are all similar. The women are all pretty young and seem to all be very kind hearted. Jia-Jen finds love unexpectedly. She works at Wendy’s. Their she witness a coworker disregard her boyfriend’s feelings. Jia-Jen is nice so she tries to help the young man thru what he thinks is heart break. In the process they end up falling in love with each other. Jia-Chein is very powerful in her career. She is an airline executive who is in a meaningless relationship with an old boyfriend. She is unable to really find love because she is stuck in the pass with her ex. She meets a man who she is interested in but she thinks he is the guy who broke her sister’s heart back in college. She ends up ending the relationship with the ex and finding inner peace. Jia-Ning is a high school chemistry teacher. Her sisters think she should try harder to find love but she is content as she is. She has everyone believing she can’t love someone again because of a love in college who broke heart, This story was made up. She catches the eye of a new gym teacher at the school. She at first ignores his advances but soon gives in and ends up falling for him. The girls all had a strange relationship with their dad. Jia-Chien and her dads relationship is the strangest of the girls. She is so much like her dad and he knows that so it keeps them at ends with each other. She can also cook but is unable to prepare a meal at home because her dad do not approve. Jia-Jen just kind of coast by with her dad. She does what needs to be done to keep from having too much conversation with her dad. Jia-Ning took over the mother role and helped raise her younger sisters. She lives her life without stepping on her father’s toes. Seems to me the women learned to follow their dad’s rules which were basically attending Sunday dinner and stay out of his way the rest of the time. In Master chu’s home Sunday dinners is a big thing. The movie opens up with him preparing this big feast. I think the importance of this scene was to show that these dinners meant a lot to chu. He was losing his sense of taste so these dinners where also practice for his jobs. Because the Sunday dinners where such a big deal this is also where the family made all their big announcements. The announcements started with Jia-Chien who announced she had used her savings to purchase an apartment that was in the process of being built. She later had to announce that it was a scam and her money was stolen. Next it was Jia-Jen her announcement shocked even me. She announcement she had found love, she was moving in his family home with him and that they were expecting a child. Jia-Chein’s announcement also shocked the family. She announced that she had also found love and had already married him. She was following Jia-Jen and also moving out of her father’s home.
Master chu and his daughters all live interesting lives. Their stories are so different but they all seem to connect in a way that only a family could understand. In the ways they all found love, dealt with their father, and made announcements to the family the girls were all similar. In the end they all leave including the father. Jia-chien is the exception she buys her dads home and lives there. She cooks her dad a meal and her taste it, I believe because all his daughter’s had found their happiness and in return he found his happiness therefore he was able to taste things again.
